Frank J. Oteri (NewMusicBox) reviews the recent Bridge recording Paul Lansky: Imaginary Islands, writing in depth of the composer's reputation for electronic music. The three works included on the album are, however, written expressly for "carbon-based life forms," according to Lansky, and represent a dramatic departure. "They are his very first compositions for orchestra, despite sounding like they were written by someone who has had a lifetime of experience taming this behemoth ensemble!" While the title Imaginary Islands may evoke a specific mental imagery, Oteri reminds us, "Most people associate the word island with isolation and tranquility, but it's important to remember that Manhattan, Montreal, Hong Kong, and Singapore are also all islands. While Lansky's second island offers opportunities for reflective contemplation, his first and especially his third are sprawling urban soundscapes that offer many reasons for numerous return trips." Duration: 21'.
